About 8 months ago I decided to give myself a gift and take Mondays and Fridays to do the “backroom” things involved in having a business. I also thought that on occasion, I could grab lunch with a friend as well. Mostly, those days were when I could put on leggings and a sweatshirt and write content, plan videos, create or enhance programs, etc. Tuesday thru Thursday would be the days when I saw the few patients I see and work with my clients (although they have access whenever, but the basic form would be in place for intros etc.) It was all so perfectly logical and planned with precession. Then over the course of the months, reality hit.   

I was now in the office seeing people 3 days a week pretty much from 8:00am – 8:00 pm with 30 minutes to one hour for lunch – or emails, returned calls, or texts. Not what I had envisioned. This morning I woke up thinking, “I don’t like my life.” WOO that is so not me. The perpetual optimist, the one filled with laughter and joy at the drop of a hat... As I sat there on the edge of the bed, it took a minute to say, “OK time for a change.”
